*After many lonely, nomadic years, Drizzt Do'Urden finally settled in the remote arctic outpost of Icewind Dale. There, the dark elf found what he'd sought for so long: deep-rooted friendship worth dying for. After defending the Dale's community of outcasts from a mad wizard and his monstrous allies, a peace has settled over the land. In this time of calm, Drizzt fulfills an oath to one of his friends - to join him in his quest to find the legendary land of Mithral Hall.
